Because my husband and I are just getting started on low carbs we have lots of questions and lots of things we are looking up. My biggest question that I struggle finding an answer for is what are some suggested LOW CARB items we can have for snacks? I think we have our meals figured out but are in needy of snack items and I am at a loss. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you share with us.

Tahoe - What plan are you on? I recommend checking out the FAQ on the Atkins thread. It's applicable for any low carb. Things to know, watch out for, etc.

Anyone know the answer to the sugar alcohol issue? Can you really count the sugar alcohol against total carbs? I'm a little suspicious and have heard people say it's a lie the manufacurers tell to get you to buy, and then I've heard others say that it's legitimate to deduct the S.A. from total carbs.

Any thoughts?

I personally count every stinking sugar alcohol. I learned the hard way that they really slow me down.

As for the whole scoop on sugar alcohols, check the FAQ on the Atkin's thread. ;)
